I love Pimm's, but I'm not a fan of the way the fruit gets macerated after sitting around for a bit. This is much more up my street.
6 limes, 4 peeled and chopped, 2 sliced
100ml elderflower cordial
2 tbsp caster sugar
750ml soda water
Couple sprigs of mint, leaves only
Ice, to serve
Whizz the chopped limes, elderflower cordial and caster sugar in a blender or food processor until smooth. Pour into a large bottle with the gin and the soda water.
Close and keep chilled until just before leaving the house then place in a cool bag with a bag of ice and a container with the mint and sliced limes.
When it comes time to serve, put some ice and the lime slices in a large jug. Pour in the prepared cocktail and stir. Serve immediately.Reuse content
